This vegan recipe is a culinary metaphor for Mooladhara Chakra.The four root vegetables (potato, sweet potato, carrot, ginger) symbolize both the number of petals (4) and the literal translation of the name of the chakra - place of the root.The beautiful yellow color of the soup is a nod to the tattwa yantra - a yellow square.The paprika sprinkled on top of the soup represents the color of the petals: deep red.The delicate gingery aroma represents the tanmatra - smell, and the gyanendriya - nose.
